I shoot nothing but Varget in my .22-250's. I love the stuff. I always get excellent accuracy and velocity is par for a given bullet weight. It's clean burning, the velocity spreads are low and it's not temp sensitive.

For the 22-250, the time proving standard is H380, my buddies swear by 3031. I also like 748 for the mid size capacity cases. Many people also swear by Varget and BLC-2 as well.

I think Varget is a pretty good one. I also use H4895.

As is obvious by the responses the typical 22-250 isn't real picky about powder. I never found one yet that didn't shoot H380 quite well. Loaded under a 52 gr. Amax is my first choice.

H4895 from 40 up to 70 gr bullets in 22/250. 110 to 200 gr bullets in .308. Same range bullets in '06.
